Hi I'm Betsy

I grew up in Arkansas. Now I live in Georgia. My husband and I own a Karate studio. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a wife and a mom. I have 3 kids. They are 8, 6 and 4. My husband and I own a small business and in a few more days I am starting college again. I'm a little nervous about how I'm going to balance my time and meet all my commitments!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that Jesus Christ lived and died for me. I know that He has paid the price for my sins and I know that He understands all that I am going through. I am a Mormon because it brings peace and happiness to me and to my family. I am a Mormon because through this I can be together with my family forever and that is one of the things that is most important to me. I know that as I try to keep the commandments and live the way God wants me to live I am blessed and that helps me keep trying. I am not perfect and it is not always easy but I know that I can always keep trying with His help.

How I live my faith

I have spent the last 4 years working with the youth in our church. I used to only work with the program called the "Young Women" which was for the girls ages 12-18 but now I am teaching the Sunday School program for the 15 year olds so I get to work with some of the boys too. That's been a little bit of an adjustment. I also play the piano and organ so I work with the choir some and with some of the other musical aspects of the worship services. I enjoy reading and studying the scriptures each week as I get my lesson ready for Sunday. There are many Bible stories I have forgotten or never really learned as a child that I get to learn now as an adult. Learning the Bible and Book of Mormon better has really helped me be a better mom as I try to teach my children about Christ.
